“I’ve also had a number of international
scholars and research students read my
articles and listen to the music I have
available in the repository. As a result, I am
now pursuing collaborative research projects
with music studios and researchers in Mexico
and Norway”

This has to have been one of the best work-related
courses I've attended. Not only do I feel that I have
taken on board an enormous amount of information
that is directly relevant to my job - and intellectually
stimulating to boot - but I feel I have made contact
with a supportive network of colleagues. All this,
perfectly organised, and a faultless, fabulous
environment, too. Outstanding. Thank you!

Thanks so much for the visit it was
really useful and has lifted all the
people involved. The steering group
were most inspired and positive and
your presentation has definitely moved
us forward.

Will academics deposit in
a repository?
Yes, if it causes no legal
problems
Yes, if their funder requires it
